The Jets ended the home dominance of Anaheim when they handed them their first regulation loss back on January 21st. The Ducks have lost 6 games at the Honda Center since then but would still love to exact a measure of revenge as they meet again. Winnipeg is well out of the playoff hunt but beating Anaheim twice in their own backyard would be somewhat of a feat on this lost season.
Winnipeg has gone 2-6-2 in their last 10 games, 5 of which in where they were favorites. The Jets have already notched one impressive win on their 5 game road trip in a 4-3 victory at San Jose on Thursday night. A win in Anaheim would be a small measure of success to build on as Winnipeg plays out their last 8 games of the year.
The Ducks have their eyes on a bigger prize as they are currently the #3 seed in the Western Conference playoff hunt. Anaheim trails St. Louis by just 6 points for the top seed and still have an outside chance at the President's Trophy. Anaheim is a disappointing 4-4-2 in their last 10, failing to cash in 5 times as favorites.
Bettors who were riding Anaheim's hot home win streak were dealt quite a blow during Winnipeg's 3-2 win back in January. The Ducks were -209 favorites but lost despite out-shooting the Jets 42-21. Those bold enough to pick Winnipeg for the upset enjoyed a windfall of a +191 payout.
